Celebrated author and veteran historian Diane Moczar takes you on a fast-paced and provocative ride through the development of Christian civilization from its emergence within the Roman Empire through its medieval springtime and summer. Indeed, within five hundred years of Nero's persecutions of the first disciples, Christian civilization permeated every aspect of European culture with kings and commoners alike paying allegiance to the Catholic Church. A master storyteller with an entertaining and evocative style, Dr. Moczar introduces you to the celebrated intellectuals and mystics, the magnificent artists and writers, and the greatest heroes and villains who forever changed Christianity and the West. You'll also explore the dreadful heresies and sinful practices -both inside the Church and out - that developed cracks that would become great fissures, leading to the bitter autumn that followed a most glorious age. Most of all, these pages will increase your love of God-who is the source of all truth - through a deeper understanding of Catholic history. And they will renew your confidence that the Church is indeed Christ acting in the world and that no matter how many Neros are sent her way by Satan, she will not be defeated but will endure until the end of time.

A master storyteller with an entertaining and evocative style, Dr. Moczar introduces you to the celebrated intellectuals and mystics, the magnificent artists and writers, and the greatest heroes and villains who forever changed Christianity and the West.

You’ll also explore the dreadful heresies and sinful practices—both inside the Church and out—that developed cracks that would become great fissures, leading to the bitter autumn that followed a most glorious age.

Most of all, these pages will increase your love of God—who is the source of all truth—through a deeper understanding of Catholic history. And they will renew your confidence that the Church is indeed Christ acting in the world and that no matter how many Neros are sent her way by Satan, she will not be defeated but will endure until the end of time.

The Church Ascending is a short work of history covering the development of Christianity and European civilization from the beginnings of the Church through the end of the 15th century. It's a fun work and you can tell the author did her research, but it's definitely a popular work, not a scholarly one. She calls Emperor Frederick II Barbarossa "Fred" for example and discusses how she does not like him and thinks him a bit evil. Each chapter ends with some questions for thought and a short annotated bibliography of works she recommends, most of them older. It's a great place for someone to start learning about early and medieval history, but it should not be your only resource.

Recommended for those looking for a readable history of early and medieval Europe with a focus on the Catholic Church and those associated with it. ( )
